My community, Newman, is located in the Pilbara of W.A and is a very small town but it comes with its perks. Most of the people that come to town are FIFO workers for up at the mine or people who a stopping to fuel up and have a break from driving. The people that work and live in the town are very nice and help to run all the sporting clubs as well as the other clubs that contribute to my town in other ways. Nothing happens without people you know finding out about it that is why everyone considers the town to very safe for kids. One of the best things about Newman is that it doesn't take to long to walk or ride anywhere with it being even shorter to drive. There are lots of tracks to go out riding on motorbikes and you can always go down to one of the many watering holes surrounding Newman. This town from the outside may seem very boring but once you have lived here you will find out that there is a lot more to this place than what it is portrayed as, a small mining town.
